Pets.. but not quite
The list goes on and on with animals. There are a lot of them that are mammals. Here’s a list of animals I like. That I want as a pet. They are:
Corgi
Pomeranian
Husky
Panther
White tiger
Turtle
Teacup pig

Baby cub

A finger monkey
That might be plenty
The list can go on, and I might be wrong. I could totally pull these off for pets. I might have to ask the vets.

The Candy Bar Dilemma
I was in the store and she said I could only have one
I knew that decision would not be fun
I mean there’s  Kitkat’s, Snickers, 3 Musketeers,
Butterfingers, Doves, Hershey’s, Milkyways, Reese’s,
Oh Henry bars, Paydays, and Twix
Who could make this difficult choice?

So Many Choices
When we are kids,
We have many choices.
What do we do and where do we do it?
We can be teachers
Doctors and farmers
Astronauts or dancers
A soldier, fireman, or veterinarian
Biologists, engineers, police officers
We can do our jobs anywhere.
In Paris, Madrid, or Greece
Barcelona or Ireland
Italy, Australia, and India
The Bahamas or maybe the moon
They all sound great, so how will we choose?
